Jason Boland & The Stragglers – No Damn Good lyrics

My day usually starts in the neighborhood of two
And that's when you're wanting a call
What can I say I've got some things that I've got to do
I been throwin' darts at the wall
Yeah, well sometimes folks are fragile and sometimes I don't think
Even if I did it might not change a thing
What were you expecting maybe flowers in the mail
And God forbid I bought a diamond ring

Now if you can find a reason how I'm the one to blame
You better write up Congress and have them pass a law
That the world starts and stops at the drop of your will
And I'll get crucified for it all
This may sound too drastic or alcohol induced
But anything worth saying should be said
What part of "I'm staying single" did you not understand
Right now you're wishing I was dead

Things ain't ever as good as they seem
And we never do what we should
So don't set there and come apart at the seams
And don't blame it on me I told you sometimes, well I'm no damn good

Well there's somewhere that I'm going and it ain't where you belong
I know it's hard to see from where you are
Someday you'll thank me when you're married to a banker
On the upside of town in your flashy car
Yeah but me I'll still be running from love and luck and the devil
I'll find a new place to watch that setting sun
Well the time is always passin' so I'm telling you not asking
Better go on turn the other way and run
